Intellectual Property (IP) refers to the legal rights granted to a person or company for their unique intellectual creations. It encompasses various forms, such as patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and designs. The common characteristic is that they protect the works and innovations created by individuals or inventors. Intellectual Property encourages innovation and creativity by offering incentives and mechanisms to reward and safeguard the economic interests associated with the creations. Here are some common categories of Intellectual Property:

Patents

Patents protect new inventions, technological innovations, or product designs. They grant inventors exclusive rights to prevent others from using, manufacturing, or selling the invention without permission.

Trademarks

Trademarks are symbols, logos, or signs used to identify the source of products or services. Trademark protection prevents others from using identical or similar trademarks to avoid consumer confusion.

Copyrights

Copyrights protect original works of expression, such as literature, music, art, and software. Copyright grants authors exclusive rights to control activities such as reproduction, modification, distribution, and performance of their works.

Trade Secrets

Trade secrets refer to valuable business information, such as technology, processes, customer lists, or marketing strategies, which are crucial for company success. Trade secrets are protected by maintaining confidentiality and restricting unauthorized use or disclosure.
